Music Monday – Popular Monster by Falling In Reverse

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! Once again, Alex will be choosing this week’s song, because we are still in a kind of lockdown. But, he will be going back to work full time this week, so this will be the last week where he chooses the song (which some of you will be sad about, because Alex’s choices seem to be more popular than mine).

He wanted to go out with a bang, so for this week’s song, he has chosen Popular Monster by Falling In Reverse.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


Popular Monster by Falling In Reverse

Falling In Reverse released Popular Monster as a single, back in 2019, and it hasn’t featured on any of their albums. The last album the band released was Coming Home, in 2017, but they have released a few singles since then, including Popular Monster.


Lyrics

I wake up every morning with my head up in a daze
I’m not sure if I should say this, fuck, I’ll say it anyway
Everybody tries to tell me that I’m going through a phase
I don’t know if it’s a phase, I just wanna feel okay, yeah
I battle with depression, but the question still remains
Is this post-traumatic stressin’ or am I suppressing rage?
And my doctor tries to tell me that I’m going through a phase
Yeah, it’s not a fucking phase, I just wanna feel okay, okay
Yeah, I struggle with this bullshit everyday
And it’s probably ’cause my demons simultaneously rage
It obliterates me, disintegrates me, annihilates me

‘Cause I’m about to break down, searching for a way out
I’m a liar, I’m a cheater, I’m a non-believer
I’m a popular, popular monster
I break down, falling into love now with falling apart
I’m a popular, popular monster

I think I’m going nowhere like a rat trapped in a maze
Every wall that I knock down is just a wall that I replace
I’m in a race against myself I try to keep a steady pace
How the fuck will I escape if I never close my case?
Oh my God, I keep on stressin’, every second that I waste
Is another second sooner to a blessing I won’t take
But my therapist will tell me that I’m going through a stage
Yeah, it’s not a fucking stage, I just wanna feel okay, okay
Motherfucker, now you got my attention
I need to change a couple things ’cause something is missin’
And what if I were to lie, tell you everything is fine?
Every single fucking day I get closer to the grave
I am terrified, I fell asleep at the wheel again
Crashed my car just to feel again
It obliterates me, disintegrates me, annihilates me

‘Cause I’m about to break down, searching for a way out
I’m a liar, I’m a cheater, I’m a non-believer
I’m a popular, popular monster
I break down, falling into love now with falling apart
I’m a popular, popular fucking monster

Yeah, here we go again, motherfucker, oh

We’re sick and tired of wondering
Praying to a God that you don’t believe
We’re searching for the truth in the lost and found
So the question I ask is, oh, where the fuck is your god now?

‘Cause I’m about to break down, searching for a way out
I’m a liar, I’m a cheater, I’m a non-believer
I’m a popular, popular monster
I break down, falling into love now with falling apart
I’m a popular, popular monster

I’m a liar, I’m a cheater, I’m a non-believer
I’m a popular, popular monster
